A house fire on August 7, 2018, has claimed the life of seven-year-old, Joel Urhie.

The schoolboy, who lived in Deptford, South East London, was unable to escape the blaze that consumed his home in the early hours of the morning, as he slept with his mother, Sophie and older sister, Sarah.

In memory of this sweet and intelligent child who was loved by so many, this page aims to support his family through an incredibly difficult time.

Whether this goes toward funding his funeral expenses or replace items that were lost by this horrific tragedy, any contribution will undoubtedly be appreciated. 

Please donate what you can or share widely with your networks! I do not know the family personally, but like you, I feel overwhelmingly saddened by the loss of young Joel.

Psalm 23:4 “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”

Consent for this campaign was obtained from the Urhie family through contact with Sarah Uhrie directly.

Dear donors,

This campaign is now closed. Thank you all once again for your kind contributions to the Urhie family. The money, after admin deductions by Go Fund Me, has been transferred to Mrs Iroroefe Urhie (Joel's mother), as of Tuesday, September 18. I will be attending the funeral next month and I will relay all of your kind wishes.

Thanks and best,
Monifa Bobb-Simon

Dear Donors,

Thank you all for your kind donations to the Urhie family. With your support, we have managed to achieve and exceed our £1,000 target.

As a concerned member of the public, I started this Go Fund Me page with the hope of offering help during a particularly tragic bereavement.

Since the campaign started, I have been in touch with Sarah Urhie, Joel's older sibling. Now that we have achieved our goal, the funds will be withdrawn in my name and this will be delivered to the beneficiary via bank transfer.

I am so grateful to you all for your kind and generous contributions and hope to provide a further update if I am able to attend Joel's funeral.

Best Wishes,
Monifa Bobb-Simon
